We were thrilled one summery day in September to find that our little self-catering cottage on a sheep farm about 10km from Howick looked out over a small dam. Imagine our wonder when the dam had disappeared the following morning! A little mystery to add to our visit to Sugarlands cottage, Curry’s Post, KZN.
Sugarlands is just a couple of kilometres from the lovely Old Halliwell Country Inn and a more affordable and laid-back choice for those like us who prefer to do their own thing, sit on the stoep while the braai fire gets to the right state of readiness, or have a simple breakfast of coffee and rusks.
There’s lots to do in the area, from the Mandela Capture Site, to arts and crafts on the Midlands Meander, from horse riding and trout fishing to the Karkloof Nature Reserve and Karkloof Canopy Tour.
